    Anyone else having problems? I've had purchases cancelled, bids expire within minutes of placing them, and floods of duplicate mail. Gotta wonder if security has been compromised

    It would be helpful to know what your or were bidding on.

    My experiences with eBay doing such activities related to crooked sellers or scammers running fake auctions. If they find a fake auction they shut it down immediately and cancel all bids and possible purchases that were in play.

    My experience with ebay varies. Mostly positive, but had a number of bozos. One woman was scamming people claiming to sell a disc with software that "cleans your PC" and even showed a picture of the disc and the package... then after I paid $15, all I got was a couple of links to bogus freeware sites with junk software that scans your computer for viruses but can't fix anything.

    I reported her to ebay along with the proof of what she was doing but they never did anything, she was still running the cam months later. I did end up with a refund at least.
